Because sometimes a beauty splurge is worth it…
Today’s gift guide was a reader request! These are a few of my favorite $90+ beauty gift ideas that, let’s be honest, you might also want to gift to yourself, ha.
The Best Fancy AF Beauty Gifts
Dr. Gross products are amazing but this limited-edition holiday kit is next-level, am I right? It includes their FDA-approved LED device (DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro), a full-size facial serum, a full-size eye serum, and a five-pack of the iconic (and my personal favorite) Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peels. Yeah, it’s pricey but definitely worth the splurge.
You guys know how much I love Sunday Riley and kit is the complete anti-aging night time skincare routine (including a cleanse and prep step). It’s also a great way to try a big selection of Sunday Riley products to see which ones you want to buy again in full size.
Three // Oribe Gold Lust Collection
Oribe’s hair products are also iconic and this gold lust collection is not only pretty to look at, but it has pretty much everything you need for your shiniest, silkiest hair ever. This set is artfully presented in a collectible box featuring work by À Paris chez Antoinette Poisson.
Four // Kiehl’s Brighten Up & Glow
Kiehl’s is another long-time favorite and this brighten up and glow gift set will give you full size versions of their best-selling Ultra Facial Cream, Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing & Dark Circle-Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum, and Clearly Corrective Dark-Spot Corrector.
Five // MARA Sea The Glow Radiance Duo
If you listen to my podcast, A Little Too Much, then you probably heard my recent episode with MARA’s founder, Allison McNamara! To say that MARA products are good is honestly an understatement. This set is the ULTIMATE gift for any skincare lover because these two facial oils were made to work together – the Algae Retinol Face oil works to target signs of aging and improve skin texture and dark spots, while the Universal Face Oil hydrates skin for a dewy glow.
Anything Gucci is obviously chic (btw I can’t wait to see House of Gucci!), but this lip gift set is honestly just pretty to look at aside from being fun to wear. The set includes Gucci’s three new lipsticks in diverse formulations. These are Rouge à Lèvres Matte with a matte lipstick finish, Rouge à Lèvres Voile with a sheer finish, and Baume à Lèvres, a lip balm with a translucent finish.
Seven // La Mer The Luminous Set
Lastly, La Mer is pretty much the pinnacle of skincare luxury and this limited-edition gift set of mini essentials is an ideal introduction to the infamous brand. Infused with the sea-inspired “miracle broth,” the regimen delivers soothing hydration and a radiant glow…not to mention major clout.
